  1. When an army of unstoppable shiny silver T800 Endoskeletons can't defeat the human resistance there's only one thing for Skynet to do....create a purple one with horns and hip-blasters! Ah yes the golden years of Kenner Toys gave us some amazing designs, some a bit more interesting than others such as the endoskeleton Kromium from their vintage Terminator Future War line. While I wasn't able to incorporate the extending feature the vintage toy had (there's not much plastic to work with using a plain Endo) I tried to get him as close as I could to the original design! Kromium was made using a classic NECA Endoskeleton, BAF Odin horns, Cylon/Iron Man/Star Wars/Halo/Gundam/Transformers and scratch built sections to complete his armored-up look. I used Testors Aztek Airbrush paints (brushed on) and he was entirely shaded using The Army Painter's Quickshade wash sets and sealed using Mr Hobby Mr Top Coat semigloss Premium sealer.

  2. Straight out of Shonen Jump's manga comes my newest custom, Space Adventure Cobra created in Marvel Legends scale! Classic Cobra was created from a Red Guardian body, Whirlwind lower arms, Ultron forearm, wrestling head with modded Starlord hair, and various fodder parts/belts. He comes with a removable Psychogun arm, Lady Cobra revolver, multiple hands, and cigar! For more out of this world pics, head to his page here: Space Adventure Cobra figure
  3. Ready for some retro Foot-clan action? Here's a 6" scale Foot Soldier that's decked out like the original vintage toy! This Foot Soldier was created using an Neca TMNT cartoon Shredder, vintage transforming Foot Soldier head/arm guards, and Aves Studio's Apoxie Clay to sculpt the vest as well as fill holes and add detail. The tunic was trimmed, new hands added, and the vintage toy's mace and Shell-Biter staff refitted. Foot Soldier even comes with a big ol' commando knife, roof top base, and is painted just like the vintage toy! For more pictures of this custom head here: NECA Style Vintage Foot Soldier
  4. Stalking the junkyard of Ord Mantell comes the fearsome assassin droid/bounty hunter IG-88! I wasn't satisfied with the level of articulation the Black series had so I decided to fix him up. A tilt joint was added to his neck in order to make his head taller and allow him to look up and down. IG88's hip swivels were replaced with the smallest revoltech joint so he can widen his stance and his elbow grommets cut and modded allowing for 90 deg motion. All the short wires on his legs were removed and replaced with longer flexible ones. 88 was then given the full metallic and weathered repaint treatment and an Ord Mantell junkyard base created from the Luke Skywalker Hoth centerpiece. A couple of blast effects later and this assassin droid was ready to tear up the bounty hunter scene! To hunt down a bounty of pics head to his page here: Ig-88 Assassin Droid on Ord Mantell base
  5. "Stories were told to Eternia children of the Lost World of the Warlord where heroes and monsters battled underground for supremacy...except they were more than just stories. Subternia held the key to linking both worlds with Skullman emerging ready to conquer all who opposed him. But wait, the surface of Eternia was already claimed by....another skull-faced Villain? Skullman and Skeletor were instant foes for there can be only one bone-headed barbarian in Eternia!" Ready for something retro? This week I've created SKullman from the vintage Remco Warrior Beasts line using a Red Onslaught head, basic MotUC body, Snout Spout feet, Skeleton warrior hands, Darius lower arms, and DCM Reaper cape. I also painted up Reaper's head to resemble the hooded first release of Skullman before they swapped to the straight skull release. He comes with a bow and sword just like the original did but this time he has a detailed modern style! For more skeletal pics head to his page here: /url]
  6. "When it comes to crypts that needs exploring, ancient ruins that need discovering, or tribal warlords that need battling, none are better equipped than Radd-Venture. This mysterious man of action intends to explore every inch of Eternia using his rocket boots to propel him over dangerous chasms and power-whips to disarm traps. What's this? Skeletor is searching for an ancient gem of power? Radd-Venture is already in the tomb and has raided the treasure! For historical purposes of course." Here's another original custom creation for your Masters of the Universe Classics collection, Radd-Venture, Eternian explorer! Radd was created using a Rio-Blast body, Darius head, Saurod lower legs, Eldor shirt, Playmotion Ultron tendrils, Cad Bane gun parts, and creech wrist blasters for the jet boots. I wanted an Indiana Jones themed character and even gave him a satchel to complete the look. His shirt is removable and you can swap the power whips/pistols out between his wrist ports.

  7. "Savior, conqueror, hero, villain. You are all of these things, Revan..." The Legacy of Darth Revan wasn't always dark, he was once a Jedi knight and here I'm bringing Jedi Revan to you in 6" Star Wars Black series form! This version of Revan was featured in the Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes mobile game and was created using the Darth Revan figure with modded machine man belt, Old Luke skirt, and various straps/buckles. The hood needed to be removed, the neck reworked, and a complete paint job with metallic armor finished him up. For more pics head over to his page here: Custom Jedi Revan 6" Star Wars Black figure
  8. He's short, he's stocky, and he's the best at what he does. It's Wolverine and today I'm bringing his MvC2 sprite to life as a custom Marvel Legends figure! Wolverine was created from a Marvel universe hulk body/fists, sabertooth waist/upper legs, Masters of the Universe forearms, old ML Wolvie head with Apoxie Clay sculpted cowl, and Revoltech Wolverine lower legs/claws. Flexible boot tips were added, lots of shading and detail, along with extra range of movement added so you can pose Wolverine doing all the video game attacks like his Berserker Barrage and Weapon X specials.

  9. When evil needs to be punished you bring in the man named for the task, the Punisher himself armed to the teeth and armored for war! This week I bring you a special version of Frank ready to take on your Legends collection all by himself. The Punisher was created using the Civil War Crossbones body, Demo man arms, Walgreens Punisher head, and Captain America lower legs. Scarlet Spider pouches were added to bulk up the arms and he was repainted head to toe with subtle shading and weathering. Punisher's arsenal includes a 50 cal, M-16, pistol, rocket launcher, shotgun, and ammo bin. Elastic web gear was added so he could store all the weapons on his body in case he needed more firepower.

  10. Here's another original custom creation for your Masters of the Universe Classics collection, Tem-Plarr! Modeled after the Templar Knights of lore this stony stoic statue was created from a Callix body, Mythic Legions knight head, Omega Red ponytail Iron Monger BAF fists and feet, Ceratus waist armor, Dr Strange cape section, Lightseekers shoulderpads, and sculpted detail using Aves Apoxie Clay. His broadsword was made using a ML Ares sword with a new hilt and a Digimon shield was modified into a Templar version that plugs on to his left forearm. Tem-Plarr was given realistic stone effects and weathered metallic detaling on his armor using Testors Metallic Lacquer. For more righteous pictures head to his page here: Custom Templar Knight MOTUC
  11. "High above in the skies of Eternia a watchful warrior patrols, Dyna-Soar the Jurassic Aviator. Ever since he was hatched Dyna dreamed of chasing the feathered flying creatures and buzzing insects. But waiting around for his kin to grow feathers would take forever! Dyna began studying methods of flight and with the help of King Randor's mechanics devised a powerful flying apparatus he could pilot. With his mighty Meteor-Mallet Dyna-Soar keeps the skies clear of trouble, and sometimes the ground when he comes in for a landing!" Here's Dyna-Soar, another original custom creation for your Masters of the Universe Classics collection. Dyna was created using a Ceratus body, King Chooba lower legs, Lightseeker head, Marvel's Vulture Titan wings, GI Joe Sigma 6 web gear, Saurod waistguard, BAF Onslaught hands, and an DC Direct Orion flight vest. Testors Metallic Lacquer was used for his metal effects and he was airbrushed with light blue highlights to complement his look. Two of Strobo's meteor stands were used on a ML Odin spear to create his hammer weapon. For more high flying pics head to his page here: Custom MotuC Dyna-Soar
  12. My post-apocalyptic Transformers are back and the "End of the Road" series continues! In the far future humankind has become all but extinct and the war between Autobot and Decepticon has ravaged the planet, each faction doing anything it can to survive. Here I've taken a Titans Return voyager Optimus Prime and given him all the battle damage, weathering, scuffed, dusty, and bullet-ridden detail my other EotR figures have. Prime features metal wheel covers and chains. His plane mode is gone and there's magnetic missile launchers that store in his legs now. His Battle-Tanker alt mode features an anti-aircraft top mounted gun as well. It's the End of the Road for the Transformers...who will be next? To transform and roll out with more pics head here: End of the Road Optimus Prime
